R. G. Collingwood’s Views on the Feeling – Thought Relation and Their Relevance for Current Research

Issue: 5:3 (The nineteenth issue)
Current research in affectivity is often dominated by perspectives on the
feeling/thinking dichotomy. In the paper first I reconstruct Collingwood’s
position on this point as it is presented in his Religion and Philosophy, The
Principles of Art, and New Leviathan, and then compare it shortly with
Bergson’s view. In total five of Collingwood’s different readings of the
feeling/thought relation are brought to light. Finally, I opt for a view that takes
feeling and thought to be complementary and inseparable, and I try to explain
why and how they are better treated in this way.
